Thread: wet crawl space

  1. #1

    Unhappy wet crawl space

    I had rain for 2 straight weeks. I looked underneath my house, through the crawl space, and noticed there was 4 in of water under the house. I pumped the water out and immediately got a heavy duty fan, aimed it directly into the crawl space in an attempt to dry out underneath the house. It has been blowing non-stop for over a week and it is still muddy underneath the house. All of the vents under the house are open. Is there anything that I can do to speed up the process? The house is quite old...built in the 60's. HELP!!??

    try adding a space heater if possible, i no it sucks at this time of year. there is also a product that they sell at the home centers that pulls moister out of the air, i belive its like a granular product. i have a wet basement and i use a dehumidifier, that would be better than a space heater in this season. i geuss it comes down to cost effectiveness.
